By Charles Leslie Jr: Municipal elections are here.
This is what the UDP did not grasp during their 13 years in office and will never grasp:
The Government, and its ability to function, succeed and create beneficial results for the majority, rely on the morals of the people.
The moral character of the people was terribly eroded under the UDP.
So much so, Belizeans decided to reject the UDP in the most stunning election defeat in Belize’s history.
And even with that horrific defeat on November 11th, 2020, the UDP continues on the exact same trajectory:
My fellow Belizeans living in our beautiful municipalities, the UDP as a political party is over.
There is nothing to redeem.
Their political philosophy and economic philosophy have been a complete and total disaster for the vast majority of the Belizean people.
And the UDP has zero remorse for what they have done.
On November 11th, 2020 we dodged a bullet. Our nation would have most certainly become a dangerous dictatorship.
The PUP understood this reality, and it is why they invested a massive amount of effort into developing their Plan Belize strategy, and there’s a reason it worked: because it is grounded in reality.
It is actually a doable plan that can move Belize from a third-world country to a developing country and eventually a developed country.
A similar process Singapore went through. A nation 27 times smaller than Belize.
The PUP is embracing capitalism, with a balance of social programs, but doing so without demonizing any segment of society – ergo “Everybody Fi Win”.
Moving towards this goal is going to be painful.
We are going to have to come out of our comfort zone.
We are going to have to embrace a cultural shift.
A shift that will change the very zeitgeist of Belize.
And it is happening.
PM Briceno led the second peaceful revolution.
He did not call for civil disobedience or unrest.
He called for UNITY, towards a VISION that could be embraced by…every Belizean.
It is without a doubt that the UDP’s philosophy has been rejected, in a most magnificent way, on November 11th, 2020.
And it must continue to be rejected at the municipal level and the rural/village level.
Now, do not get me wrong, we need an opposition.
However, I believe by rejecting the UDP and what it stands for, what it represents, in every hierarchy of our society, will send a crystal clear message: we never want that type of destructive philosophy in our politics and the governing of our country ever again.
It will also send a clear message that we demand leaders that embrace the benefits of a society that produces instead of one that simply consumes.
When more and more Belizeans understand that we need to measure ourselves by our economic viability, we will understand that the Government is there to serve us, so that we can create, produce, generate wealth, instead of looking to the Government for handouts.
When that happens, no government can push around the people, and the Government ends up doing what it was meant to do…govern, not dictate.
And the people end doing what they were meant to do…produce, not become dependent, desperate beggars.
The synthesis…EVERYBODY WINS!
March 3rd. Reject UDP. Vote PUP down the line.
